30 List of Seminaries and Theology Schools in Nigeria

Last Updated on








According to Wikipedia, Seminary, school of theology, theological seminary, and divinity school are educational institutions for educating students (sometimes called seminarians) in scripture, theology, generally to prepare them for ordination to serve as clergy, in academics, or in Christian ministry.  All seminaries are run either by religious orders or by dioceses or other similar structures

Some people mistake Bible College for Seminary. Though are similar, yet different. They both focus on the Bible, Christian ministry, doctrine, etc. However, the major difference is that Bible colleges are designed as undergraduate programs (Associate, Bachelor’s) whereas seminaries are graduate level (Master’s, Doctoral).

 

Benefits of Seminary

You’ll take classes on the Bible, possibly original languages like Hebrew and Greek. You’ll take classes on theology, helping you to put doctrines and ideas together. You’ll have history classes, giving you a wide-angle lens on controversies and problems that the church has faced.

You’ll even have some classes on philosophy and worldview, which will help you to think about questions often overlooked but important. In other words, seminary training will give you some bearing on approaching Scripture and its application, but it will also equip you for a lifetime of teaching and building up the church.

It is intended to equip you, augmenting and supplementing what most churches can’t offer— intense training in those theological disciplines.

Please, note that seminary is not intended to make you a pastor or minister. This is too frequently misunderstood. Seminary isn’t the time to learn about the importance of quiet time or the need to keep close watch over one’s life.

 

Some seminary or theological schools are affiliated and accredited through NUC while others are not. The idea of affiliation is that a higher authority has validated the school, giving it greater worth. Many graduate schools will only recognize degrees from other accredited schools.

Over the course of the research, Fatherprada was able to get a list of functional Seminary schools in Nigeria and the known courses they offer. Please note that most seminary schools listed here have been accredited by NUC. These seminaries may offer more courses, but Fatherprada only mentioned those that were known.
